There were hundreds of thousands of Scots sold into slavery during Colonial America. White slavery to the American Colonies occurred as early as 1630 in Scotland.

According to the Egerton manuscript, British Museum, the enactment of 1652: it may be lawful for two or more justices of peace within any county, citty or towne, corporate belonging to the commonwealth to from tyme to tyme by warrant cause to be apprehended, seized on and detained all and every person or persons that shall be found begging and vagrant.. in any towne, parish or place to be conveyed into the Port of London, or unto any other port from where such person or persons may be shipped into a forraign collonie or plantation.

The judges of Edinburgh Scotland during the years 1662-1665 ordered the enslavement and shipment to the colonies a large number of rogues and others who made life unpleasant for the British upper class. (Register for the Privy Council of Scotland, third series, vol. 1, p 181, vol. 2, p 101).

The above accounting sounds horrific but slavery was what the Scots have survived for a thousand years. The early ancestors of the Scots, Alba and Pics were enslaved as early as the first century BC. Varro, a Roman philosopher stated in his agricultural manuscripts that white slaves were only things with a voice or instrumenti vocali. Julius Caesar enslaves as many as one million whites from Gaul. (William D Phillips, Jr. SLAVERY FROM ROMAN TIMES TO EARLY TRANSATLANTIC TRADE, p. 18).

Pope Gregory in the sixth century first witnessed blonde hair, blue eyed boys awaiting sale in a Roman slave market. The Romans enslaved thousands of white inhabitants of Great Britain, who were also known as Angles. Pope Gregory was very interested in the looks of these boys therefore asking their origin. He was told they were Angles from Briton. Gregory stated, “Non Angli, sed Angeli.” (Not Angles but Angels).

The eighth to the eleventh centuries proved to be very profitable for Rouen France. Rouen was the transfer point of Irish and Flemish slaves to the Arabian nations. The early centuries AD the Scottish were known as Irish. William Phillips on page 63 states that the major component of slave trade in the eleventh century were the Vikings. They spirited many ‘Irish’ to Spain, Scandinavia and Russia. Legends have it; some ‘Irish’ may have been taken as far as Constantinople.

Ruth Mazo Karras wrote in her book, “SLAVERY AND SOCIETY IN MEDEIVEL SCANDINAVIA” pg. 49; Norwegian Vikings made slave raids not only against the Irish and Scots (who were often called Irish in Norse sources) but also against Norse settlers in Ireland or Scottish Isles or even in Norway itself…slave trading was a major commercial activity of the Viking Age. The children of the White slaves in Iceland were routinely murdered en masse. (Karras pg 52)

According to these resources as well as many more, the Scots-Irish have been enslaved longer than any other race in the world’s history. Most governments do not teach White Slavery in their World History classes. Children of modern times are only taught about the African slave trade.

  1. Its good to see this being discussed for a change. I’m Scottish and it annoys me that this is so unheard of and ignored. Even in our Scottish academys and schools its not discussed or mentioned at all in classes or our studies. Infact if I ever mention It to people they often don’t believe me or they had no knowledge of it.

    1. We should really learn about the role former white slaves played in the degradation of blacks as a whole. The end of the Civil War, Fort Pickering – Memphis massacre of 1866, was a planned Irish Police and Fire Department affair. The media was controlled by the Klan. This was the beginning of Black Codes in the south. It was documented by Congress but there was no legal or punitive follow through.

      1. The clan did not exist back then, the clan actually didn’t exist until after WW1, I know this because my grandfather told me that he joined it,after the war,it was the beginning of the American legion, then some how it changed into a hate group towards Black’s? That’s when he decided to quit, because he wanted no part of it !

  2. Thanks for posting this valuable and relatively unknown information about Colonial slavery. On a another topic. I did some research for a human trafficking committee I was involved in last year. I was very surprised that there was a fairly split between races in the united states. Those who enslave don’t care what color you are, they only care if you are vulnerable and abused and then sadistically use these children who more than often end up in prison instead of getting the care and counseling they need.

  3. “Anyway Scotland was an Independent country with its own parliament up until 1707”

    John, you sadly lack knowledge of Scottish history.

    During the English Civil War, Cromwell’s forces defeated Bonnie Price Charlie’s forces. The Scots had sided with Charlie. He was the rightful heir to the English throne.
    Cromwell sold the Scots into slavery.

    Scotland was under the English thumb for many years before 1707.

    1. Bonnie Prince Charlie’s army (Jacobites) were mainly made up of the Highlanders. The British Army were made up of the Lowland Scots and English.
      When the British Army won they rounded up anyone who they considered to be jacobites or a supporter of the Jacobite army were imprisoned and sent to colonies to work as slaves.
      So the English and lowland Scots sold the Highlanders as slaves.

      “ Indentured servants with a contract”

      There’s a word for you where I’m from Rhondayes;

  4. You’re all so pathetic. Trying to make your ancestors noble, when all they were was poor, criminal, or insane. There’s plenty of data. However, you don’t want to accept what was true by romanticizing the dirty truth.

    1. you are the one that seems to glorify the ONLY blacks were slaves. GROW UP! The whites enslaved whites. Let’s look to the monarchy for example. When King Edward IV died his sons were put into the tower as slaves, not to rule as the rightful Kings of England. Richard III took the crown for himself so he could rule.

      The Jacobite’s who were against having a Hanoverian King ruling them were shipped by the thousands to American colonies as slaves. They were shipped to Barbados as well to work on the sugar plantations. they were sent to the Bahamas also to work on the sugar plantations. They were worked to death in inhumane conditions.
      Pull the blinders off of your eyes. I am so tired of seeing that they were indentured slaves. A slave is a slave no matter what was signed or not. Many of those who signed the indentured papers did not survive being a slave; they died as a slave. What do you have to say about that. You need to expand your mind and stop being ignorant. Ignorant people only believe what they want to believe trying to argue with everyone. This is an argument that you cannot nor will you win.

    2. Nothing romantic about it. Muslim North Africa and the Middle East captured or bought 2.5 million Slavic white slaves (mostly women and children). The English pushed Irish and Scots into servitude. The first black American slaves we’re owned by blacks. Like modern low cost outsourcing it was an impact on the southern economy that could not be resisted. Today women and children throughout the world or sold into sex slave bondage. Low cost laborers live slaves in poor conditions throughout the world to make modern textiles and other products.
      There is nothing noble about it. So stop insulting people and be constructive instead of destructive.

How dare you insult your own intelegence .. by calling the slavic people white.. what is so romantic about this word.. why do people long to be it .. what is it.. do you know what it means.. sir .. im asking you..

        1. The identifying terms ‘white’ and ‘caucasion’ have long been accepted as interchangeable. I personally don’t approve of the terms ‘white’ or ‘black’ or ‘yellow’ or ‘red’ for humankind and I will explain. The three original ‘races’ were Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid, ‘we’ lived on the super continent Pangea. Think Tower of Babel here. The map of human migration shows that we separated as Pangea was separating into the tectonic plates/continents we populate at present. The earliest human remains are measured at 300 million years old, Pangea began to split 290 million years ago.
          To argue, hate and complain about the past 400 years is ignorant and ignorance is Not bliss…..it is pain. Knowledge however is Power. At this point, None of us is a single ‘race’ and that is a simple Mitochondrial DNA Fact.

  5. One things for sure … ppl are still talking wrong … rohndas wright ” romanticizing” on the word “white” … and mistaken it for caucasion …. there not the same .. one was a slave … and one was the slave master. Its funny when caucasions talk about the (all too real) caucasion slaves, they call them “white slaves” … again whites were not slaves they were the slave masters… the caucasions were slaves… aswell as the africans and many others … romantacizing … thats a nice way of saying how this mistake (misnomer) could happen … egotacizing maybe … blinded by flatery.. maybe … besides why remember a fallen or slave , by calling them “slave master” that witch the word white represents… start there and maybe then youll get it wright … stop romantacizing on a word that u have no idea the meaning of … and there is no such thing as a white slave … stop calling caucasion slaves – slave masters i.e white… they are not the same … the elite , supremists or whites are organizations (the nazis are one such organization)… the caucasions are humans… a natural ppl … not a business plan or idealogy … the caucasions were persecuted by the whites … and many others were persecuted by the whites and it persuit of domanance supremacy … its persuit of race… where one dominates supreme over (you guessed it)….. all… look up Tim Wise Black Jesus… that tells you an all too real story, about the idealogy of race, the idealogy of supremacy… this word supremacy calls for alot of things to happen, not just slavery , but also genocide, aswell as many other inhumane acts to subdue the humans (btw these inhumane act tells you that there not human, by the very meaning of the phrase… there against or opposite to the humans) … propaganda or mental slavery serves to replace and or compliment physical slavery … its to divide and ultimately …. rule. At the very least … stop calling yourself something if you dont know what it means… this is at the very least … this shouldent even have to be explained , it should be a given… even a child knows better than that, for example when he calls himself batman instead of joker or lex luthor ………………… think………………………. the kids are still doing it ………. and its not illegal yet …………… think………………………. a child holds himself acountable to what he calls himself … can you ….. WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO YOU TO MAKE YOU LOSE THIS ABILITY… do you know the power of PROPAGANDA… and one of its porposes is to make sure the intended target does not know its there… That it suffers from it….. the target thinks its in control … taget thinks its making informed decisions … instead of uniformed ones … a spacific thought pattern, deployed to get a spacific result … to benefit a spacific organization and or idealogy… (ism skism)…. ……………………………………………… can u tell me the eventuation, the end result, of introducing race or deploying and dispencing the idealogy of race INTO the human species might be, or might cause … it would be like intuducing cancer to healthy cells … like introducing antilife to life … this is what happens of coarse in cancer, when the individual cells in your body forget who they are … they begin to Race AGAINST the body for resoreses, instead of being a productive part of the body, to help maintain the body … the cancer or the individual cells who forgot who they are and so how to act, … now act in oposition to life … they now act for the porpose of extinction… consuming its own flesh … ?to survive? Sounds like a means to its own end to me………………….. so what happpened … how did we get here … stupidity… but im not stupid… am i ………… i think slavery was completely wrong …i didnt do slavery … but someone did … someone just like you was able to be convinced that its a good thing … think about that … a human being or someone being human was oneday able to be convinced that for instance the holocaust was a good idea .. or slavery was a good idea… but let me guess .. not you … they cant fool you right… you would never sign up for those inhumane policies right… such as carbon tax right .. cause charging human beings to breath, should never be looked at as a viable solution to any problem right, much less, the first coarse of action right, not to mention the whole hosts of problems we get into by calling it a “Carbon” tax, instead of a pollution tax right , because all life , everything in life, is made up of carbon, its the foundation to wich All life stands on, its the latice that all other molecules atach to, to make life posible… …… ……….. ….. … …. ……. ……. ………… ……. ….. …. All life is carbon, without carbon, life could not exist on eath .. remember the phrase “your carbon copies” of eachother.. carbon is even in inatimate objects .. its the glue, everything can atach to it , its the most perfect atom… check the recent nobel prize …………… …… …. all other atoms can atach itself to it such as hydrogen oxygen or monoxide ………. …….. …….
    … ……….. …………… ……….. ……. … calling it carbon tax makes no distinctions on the harmful pollutants, thus giving them free reign by law for tageting, taxing aresting suspending and charging life, for the very act, of living… i.e. by calling it Carbon Tax , instead of Polution Tax , like always … they take the focus off corporations and target life ……….. …….. ……… ……… (stoping one deforestation, can do 50 times much more for the enviroment, than wording it so you can charge humans to breath .. but we could never fall for that right … were not those guys who fell for slavery being a good thing right … were not those guys who fell for, “breathing is not a right, its a privalige”… and then went on to creat the holocaust right… no were not those guys, they cant fool us into doing something like that again, in any shape or form … nope not us? …….. …….. ….. …… …… ….. …… …. … also…. …. …. ever wonder why they chose the least informed of society to make all the disicions……. …… …. its how they get what they want, Done… Done.
    … By Flatery … making you think you know what your talking about, and that your making the best desicion, your own desicion,… and informed desicion,… when the very information nessesary to make an informed desicion comes from them, thereby enginering the eventuation, the outcome to be in there favor … btw not alowing other evidences or tests is a tell, of this propaganda… in short, they select fools, ppl that are ok with not knowing much before making important desicions… not a problem to find since they also manufacture them aswell, this is the privilaged class… if you can turn a blind eye and allow evil, or so stupid, you dont know wich way is up, or more importantly, dont care… then you can make the cut …… …… just do as they say and they will make you feel important?… ….. …… the fact that you have to do what someone else says, to feel important – negates the importants . . . . . . . . . . FOR INSTANCE . . . . . . Have You Researched And Or Had Thoughts About The Subject Matter Beforehand Or On Your Own, Or Are You Going On What You Just Heard Or What One Side Is Telling You (wich incidently is the definition of a fool) … remember, “knowing half the story does not make you a judge, knowing half the story, makes you a fool” ….. …… ….. …… Privilage is : the privilage of not having to know something ……….. . . . . Like Truth For Example . . . . . . Privilage puts down Humanity, …. its time to put down privilage ……. and pick up Humanity, …. …. …. …. its a much better book, …. …. …. …. i promise… -_-) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . . . I could go on . . . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . . . Know Thy Self . . . . . . . . . . see ourselfs precious once more . Your body is your temple…. making laws that prevent someone from partaking of their own body, as they see fit, is a sin, against god and nature, a nazi slave master mentality and a crime against humanity… “give onto ceasar what belongs to ceasar, but give onto man what belongs to man” …… …… and I and I, want back mi sensi, dreadlocks, turban and broom.. .. .. Cause until that day… what did Bob Marley say?… … … …anyway … … … … ppl its simple out there … … … … … something to do with the golden rule …… ….. ….. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. ….. ….. ….. ….. ….. ….. ….. ….. ….. and dont worry . “Those who dont know will be forgive, but those who dont know and say or act as if they do, wont” . The best place to start is with the meaning of the word “white” misunderstanding of this word has lead to the center of maltis over and over, understanding when it was invented and for what porpose can bring much needed revelations to those who are using or interpreting it wrong… look up Tim Wise clip on white privilage to start… agian its not a small thing , its actualy a big deal… the biggest deal… if you use the word white and dont know what it means, then your the problem … or i should say ppl like you are the problem… and you know who you are, those who use the word but dont know what it means, and are ok with it or maybe not aware that they were ok with it, either way it leads to psycossis, and this my friend, is cancer… they are pre exposed to acting whitout knowing and are ok with it … this is how you get a person to walk into a town meeting with his canabis medicine in his pocket and vote to make that very medicine illegal without knowing it, just by changing the name of it from canabis to marijauna… and then they cast a vote as if there experts .. wow .. outlawing there own medicine, as if they knew what they were talking about … thats a special kind of stupid … and one that we have yet to recover from… the world infact is made to suffer for the few, the foolish ones and there mis-takes, mis deeds, mis placed pride and ego… if it was localized it would be one thing, but forcing these mistakes in policies on others, puts us in a whole world of problems … in fact it is the worlds biggest problem… the west have two chioces .. yes and no … the rest of the world exists in more than three .. such as yes no and, i dont know … remember the addadge of the wise man … “a wise man knows, he has lots to learn” … saying i dont know, leads you to the next platoe.. wich is, wanting to know … and finaly .. knowing. Those who dont talk and dont know will be forgiven, but whose who Talk and dont know, will not. Because it is not what goes in your mouth that defiles, its what comes out your mouth that defiles. Remember… “be not decived, for god is not mocked. What you sew, is what you reap”
